LA Kings Ice Crew Calendar! LA Kings win the Stanley Cup!!!!

In honor of the LA Kings winning the Stanley Cup this year I wanted to post about the swimsuit calendar that I shoot each year for their game entertainment, the LA Kings Ice Crew!  This past year we shot for two days.  The first was at the Riviera Resort in Palm Springs.  I decided to go with a more glamorous look for the girls to give the images more pop and a luxurious feel to them.  We shot around the pools and the cabanas and even inside of the lobby around the different furniture.   The second day was shot at Point Dume in Malibu which was more of a swimsuit style image.  I had my team create the beach tousled hair with a more natural makeup look for the girls.  The terrain gave us a lot of different shots with rocks, beach and of course the sunset which made the cover.  The LA kinds Ice Crew is definitely one of the jobs that I look forward to every year and since they won the Stanley Cup again, I know that next year's calendar will be even better!  Make sure to check out the behind the scenes feature at the bottom of the post!

Celebrity Editorial of Caity Lotz

This was an editorial I shot for Bello magazine in Los Angeles of the actress Caity Lotz.  Recently Caity received a starring role as Canary in the comic book adventure series "Arrow" and also has a reoccurring role as Stephanie in the hit series Mad Men.  Caity is really awesome to work with!  She gets right down to business but always keeps it very light which makes it fun for myself and the whole crew.  She has a real beauty to her along with a distinct sensuality that only she can bring to the camera.

Creative Direction: Harper's Bazaar, Breast Cancer Awareness, still life

Last year in November, Bazaar asked me to create a concept for a still life that revolved around the theme of breast cancer awareness.  With pink being the color of the campaign, and a lot of perfumes to shoot, I decided to use some pink fluorescent tube lights to create a background which would reflect nicely in the glass bottles and reflective surfaces of the product.  The majority of the product was pink as well so the lighting added to the intensity of the color palette.  I used a mirror that i unmounted from the bathroom and put it on the table top to add another reflective element and give the final image more depth.  Wing Chan, still life extraordinaire, photographed the products and made them look really polished and luxurious.
